Title: ZwQueryValueKey - BootExecute Error: 0x80000005
Post by: effjay on March 23, 2005, 11:26:39 AM
I scheduled a boot  time scan and get this message - don't know what this means, tho :)

It seems to complete the scan anyway, but it also seems to do that very quickly, so I assume it doesn't scan everything.

Hints are appreciated :)

By the way, I really like avast. Nice work!

Regards
Daniel

PS: using windows xp, sp1

It means that your
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\BootExecute
registry value contains more data than normally expected.
What do you have there?

Does it tell you something? Looks ok?

Well, the buffer for the registry value has limited size (in the boot-time scanner) - so it's probably not able to load the whole of it.
Please, delete the aswBoot.exe part in regedit (keep just the first 2 lines) and schedule the boot-time scan again, preferably using a shorter part (C:\Windows, for example).
